A washing machine has a weight of 975 N. It requires a minimum force of 350 N to move it along a tile floor. What is the coefficient of static friction between the washing machine and the tile floor?

This is the equation I used to find the coefficient of static friction

us = mhg/mbg This isn't written right, but I don't know how to write the equations with the dropped letters.

us = 350/975 = .359 Now I'm just wanting to see if I've done this correctly.

This is my first course in physics ever, and am having trouble understanding everything.

Thanks,
